is the Audacious project dead?

So I went to the Audacious site at because xmms is defunct and this replaces it.

From the download page at are two linsk to the two source packges.

The two links are:

No such domain on Attempts to email the site maintainer for were not successful. Probably because ther are no contact emails listed ont eh page and I had to guess the emails (names like admin, root, johnsmith, webmaster).

Looks like source is no longer available?

Can anyone clue me in here? Thanks.

p.s. Wish they had sourceforged it: they tend to keep things there years after they are long abandoned.

p.p.s. yes I googled, thank you very much

The latest release was only a few months ago, certainly a little premature to call the project dead just because they have a 404. It looks like the domain is down, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything in regards to Audacious itself.
